Create a plan in Azure Stack

Applies to: Azure Stack integrated systems and Azure Stack Development Kit

Plans are groupings of one or more services. As a provider, you can create plans to offer to your users. In turn, your users subscribe to your offers to use the plans and services they include. This example shows you how to create a plan that includes the compute, network, and storage resource providers. This plan gives subscribers the ability to provision virtual machines.

  1. Sign in to the Azure Stack administrator portal (https://adminportal.local.azurestack.external).

  2. To create a plan and offer that users can subscribe to, select + Create a resource > Offers + Plans > Plan.

    Select a plan

  3. Under New plan, enter a Display name and a Resource name. The Display name is the plan's friendly name that users can see. Only the admin can see the Resource name, which admins use to work with the plan as an Azure Resource Manager resource.

    Specify details

  4. Create a new Resource Group, or select an existing one, as a container for the plan.

    Specify the resource group

  5. Select Services and then select the checkbox for Microsoft.Compute, Microsoft.Network, and Microsoft.Storage. Next, choose Select to save the configuration. Checkboxes appear when the mouse hovers over each option.

    Select services

  6. Select Quotas, Microsoft.Storage (local), and then choose either the default quota or select Create new quota to create a customized quota.


  7. If you're creating a new quota, enter a Name for the quota > specify the quota values > select OK. The Create quota dialog closes.

    New quota

    You then select the new quota you created. Selecting the quota assigns it and closes the selection dialog.

    Assign the quota

  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 to create and assign quotas for Microsoft.Network (local) and Microsoft.Compute (local). When all three services have quotas assigned, they'll look like the next example.

    Complete quota assignments

  9. Under Quotas, choose OK, and then under New plan, choose Create to create the plan.

    Create the plan

  10. To see your new plan, select All resources, then search for the plan and select its name. If your list of resources is long, use Search to locate your plan by name.

    Review the plan
